HR Strange But True!
February 02, 2012

Donald Trump, Mark Burnett, and NBC have announced the “applicants” they have selected for Season 5 of “The Celebrity Apprentice.” The show will begin its run on Sunday, February 19.

The celebrities chosen are Adam Carolla, Arsenio Hall, Aubrey O’Day, Cheryl Tiegs, Clay Aiken, Dayana Mendoza, Debbie Gibson, Dee Snider, George Takei, Lisa Lapanelli, Lou Ferrigno, Michael Andretti, Patricia Valasquez, Paul Teutul Sr., Penn Jillette, Teresa Giudice, Tia Carrere, and Victoria Gotti.

Yes, we don’t know who some of these people are either, so we can’t say whether or not this is a dream team.

However, fans of the show have been posting names of celebs they would like to see to the show’s message board. These people would indeed be a recruiter’s ultimate applicant pool:

 Jon Stewart Stephen Colbert
 Wendy Williams William Shatner
 Larry King Larry David
 Katie Couric Suzanne Somers
 Serena Williams Sarah Palin
 Bethenny Frankel Liza Minnelli
 Scott Hamilton Ross Matthews
 Lance Armstrong Maureen McCormick
 The Olson Twins The Judds (We’d want Ashley)

There were also some suggestions that probably wouldn’t make for the most harmonious workplace:

 Charlie Sheen Eminem
 J-Wow Paris Hilton
 Charles Barkley John McEnroe
 Gordon Ramsey Pete Rose

But one was HRSBT’s favorite suggestion for a celebrity apprentice—Mark Zuckerberg!
